Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite

For eighteen years, author Trashina Conner’s first love was her father. Her father was always there for her until his unexpected death in 2006. In 18 Ingredients to Make Daddy, the author gives a personal account of what she remembered and loved about her father. Most fathers and daughters have a very special bond and Trashina recalls those intimate details of her father in this beautifully illustrated children’s book. As Trashina outlines the story, she comes from the angle of a chef using specific ingredients for a special recipe. To make her father, she adds a few cups, pinches, shakes, and a dash of things like patience, support, spoiling, promises, strength, and forgiveness. She had a dream and she knew that her father wouldn't want her to give up. The book 18 Ingredients to Make Daddy by Trashina Conner is in remembrance of him and a catalyst for her to keep going.

I too am a daddy's girl, so when I began to read 18 Ingredients to Make Daddy, I just began to smile. Though my dad is still alive yet aging, it is those memories of him that encourage me, just like Trashina. I loved how not only does the book flow well, but children will become one with the story as they too begin to build their daddy. To add that special touch, once the ingredients have been put into the bowl and mixed, there is a frame to add a photo of their daddy. Make your ideal daddy recipe today by using 18 Ingredients to Make Daddy by Trashina Conner.
